The Arabian Horse Association (AHA) is excited to announce its return to Raleigh for the 15th annual Sport Horse National Arabian and Half-Arabian Championship Horse Show! We are excited to be back this year with many new events and classes. Arabian horse trainers and exhibitors travel with their horses from all over the United States and Canada to participate.
Spectators can enjoy around 120 different classes, including Dressage, Speed Jumper and Carriage Pleasure Driving. Class sessions will begin at 8am on Tuesday, Sept. 5 and will go until the very end of the show on Sunday, Sept. 10. Admission and parking to the shows are free to the public. There is also a new class making its debut at Sport Horse Nationals this year, Western Dressage Level 2 Championship, which is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 9 at 8am.
As the premier sport horse event for Arabian horses, this show is the accumulation of dedication, hard work and big dreams. Amateur and professional exhibitors alike come together to put on an impressive display of the magic and versatility of the Arabian breed.
